Isabelle's corner reading nook is sophisticated yet cozy, and exactly how I approach decorating with color. The Farrow and Ball Hague Blue paint color is a strong blue, but the dark undertones make it a calming and classic color choice, perfect for a reading spot. Saffron and gold accents keep the palette fresh, while the furnishings offer up a touch of elegance. But since we all can't afford the luxe paint (or furniture!) we dream about, let's see if we can recreate this look without breaking the bank!
